I buy nothing but C&F boxes and haven't had the latch problems :hmmm: I like how they hold the flies well without having to pierce the foam which as we all know gradually destroys them. The little box with the divider with foam slots on both sides holds a gagillion nymphs. Yes, they are expensive, I just have to tell myself I deserve it. Aha! I just thought of the most useless piece of gear: Hodgman breathable waders - they sprung leaks so fast, just sick. I got used to being wet until I could afford something better. Now, my Simms G3, thank the fishing gods for waders that keep me dry and have nice features.
